SOTA        Summits On The Air

SOTA is an award scheme for radio amateurs and shortwave listeners that encourages portable operation in mountainous areas.


I started SOTA in late 2015. It is a good and healthy activity making me moving from my comfortable radio shack. Combining sites seeing, mountain climbing and low power radio operation. Click on the above SOTA logo to get more information about this nice programme.

My SOTA activities in 2018:

13 APR 2017 HB/VD-048 Montagne du Chateau 929 m.
10 QSO on 40m.

Along with Kurt HB9AFI. Very easy access with a 5 minutes walk from the car parking. Plenty of space at the summit. The antenna can be fixed onto a fence at the top of the water reservoir.
